I love Lucy, A Chicken, The Statue of Liberty, Elmo, and A Black Eyed Pea

Trick or Treating Chicken

The big girls are sorting candy with Elmo

Yabsera won an award for the "Best Food Costume!"

Maren went on a field trip on the 30th to a Pumpkin Patch- he came home with a pumpkin and he was so proud of it. "Mommy it was the BIGGEST one!" He had no problem with the fact that it was green and slightly mushy. It was adorable. He thought carving pumpkins was so much fun- I have not seen him get that into something new in awhile. He just LOVED it. Maddie (13) said, "Oh you can scoop out all my seeds if you want." And he did...she was so happy to not have to get goopy and he was so happy that he was the expert seed scooper in the family.

Which came first the chicken or the egg...I often think about our adoption that these boys were born before I ever knew I was bringing them home and that is pretty cool. God is good.

The Black Eyed Pea and the Black "I'ed" Pi...and yes I did make fun of my husband's costume.... :)

Yabsera starting to walk...we hoped he would walk by Halloween and even though his first steps were weeks ago he still preferred to crawl- well the week before Halloween he just started toddling around. It's a pretty cute bow-legged stagger. I like to give him all sorts of nicknames like "Sargent fatty pants" and "Sargent Stinky Pants" and my favorite is "Sargent Fuzzy head!"

Pretending to sleep.....

Maren and his teacher at the School Parade!

Cute, so very cute. I can't wait to meet them. Malcom was cookie monster - kid sized for an adult! :)

I love these costumes and the kids all look so cute but I have to say that Cal's costume beats all! How clever and fun. As for Mark, well -- just be thankful he didn't go as "P...U" :o)

Happy Fall Y'all! Hope to see (meet) you soon.

Great pictures! I love the one with Maren pretending to sleep - with his little eye peeking open! And also the look on his face with his Jack-o-lantern. Can't believe Yabsera is walking! What a cute little chicken.
